Almost 30 years?

I can’t believe how fast time passes by. At the end of this year it will be 30 years in this business. Back in the ‘90s, there were no corporate home improvement giants spotting our islands, and local companies like Liberty House, Honsport and House of Music were some of my favorite stores.


When I was small, my sister, my cousin and I used to walk maybe a mile to a small store. It must have been maybe 15-feet-by-10-feet wide in the Sheridan area. The grandpa and grandma running the store greeted us like family. It was such a treat and very special with many memories. My mom and aunty always wanted to go to Ala Moana but the “small store” was my favorite.

It’s sad so many of the local stores have long since gone. We strive to keep the “traditional values” that have been the moral code of our company — among them giving good value and treating the customer as family.

I am very proud of my team. We are passionate and have pride in what we do. I am very lucky to have a team of sincere hard-working guys and gals.
